I was reminded tonight that perhaps the reason for discouraging the rampant use of the first-person singular nominative case personal pronoun is because it can create habit out of completely disregarding the fact that the second-person singular nominative case personal pronoun is someone else’s first-person and that if we all continually speak from the position of I, then it becomes increasingly difficult to collapse those spaces between your I and my I, so that my you and your me are relatable in ways that we can understand—relatable in instances that affect our us. Because if it weren’t foryou, I would be nothing.
